Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

“I have been a working artist since 1974. A majority of my art is in commissioned work (over 370 pieces) consists of wool tapestry and later in wireworks. At this time I am working on a show to present in my studio in 2008. These works will be of pvc wire, netted and collaged with other materials. My career now includes independent historic research including written material for over 80 historic buildings in Indianapolis.” Orr
